One look at the Spring/Summer 2021 runway shows and it’s obvious — pleats are back en vogue. Sure, pleats hardly ever go away for a long time and are always around in one form or another. But this season, they are trending hard. Evidence of that is already popping on the streets.
Leave it to the “It” girls to school us on wearing the versatile pleats trend. While pleated skirts are the fashion crowd’s favorite way to approach the trend, there are absolutely no limits to wearing pleats. Pleated shirts, skirts, dresses, and even accessories (like handbags and shoes) are a thing. In fact, pleated accessories are a great way to make a statement.
Whether they are chunky box pleats or delicate accordion pleats, there are endless ways to wear the look. Not only can the fabric technique elevate just about any outfit, but it also promises to flatter all body types.
